Anxiety is my best friend. It's a hate hate relationship. Ya can't drop that stuff. You can only give it to drugs, a temporary crappy bandaid (there's your elaboration akrogon) (details? They're here)
Nothing is more powerful than a changed mind, but that's on us.
Give it to God is a psychological way to deal with stress and regret and anxiety when it gets overwhelming. Often times people feel like they just can't handle any more and the world seems like too much to handle. Thinking that you have some control over it is an illusion. But if that illusion persists it can destroy a person. So giving it up to God removes them from feeling responsible for it all and allows them the freedom to move on. It's a way for a person to drop all the baggage they are carrying when they don't have to be carrying it.

your op sounded like you are in prison (parading in cage) awaiting death penalty (execution)
We'll continuing I am relieved that's not the case
I was thinking how did they let u have a phone .. lol
btw yeah I hear you .. meh mood ..
Just an opinion. I recall you (think it was you) having a crisis of faith some time ago
If you want to stick with it though, I hear talking to God until he finally answers is a thing

Whatever you think it is, it's not about suddenly having your life become sunshine, roses and rainbows. My life never will be sunshine, roses and rainbows.
What it is about is reaching that place where you can endure because you know you aren't alone in the fight and you will be made whole someday. Amazing what you can endure then.
This life is just the blink of an eye and it's what comes after that's the grand adventure.

trusting in god in any given situation has proven to increase faith and hope for me. even if the situation goes "bad" i still continue to have a trusting that on the other side of it there will be equally "good" and even if i continue in pain or suffering, then i am still trusting.
